Så ska man ha det..

** Det jag saknas från att bli kallad för en Car-Collector är bara ett garage där de alla är samlade.

** Den Cobran är ju nästan ovärderlig..
Och det är också ett Ladyfynd mer eller mindre!

Michelin Pilot Sport 4S – winner

Delivers the steering feel, grip and instant response in the dry of a true performance tyre and uniquely combines this with good performance in the wet. Not cheap but if you want to get the best out of your high-performance car in all conditions, this is the one.

Goodyear Eagle F1 Assymetric 3 – 2nd

Rated best in the wet; dealt with the tricky wet handling track in a calm, exploitable and effective way it. Scored well enough everywhere else but, like the Dunlop, lacks the crispness of steering and response to engage and reward in the dry.

Dunlop SportMaxx RT2 – 3rd

Ran the Goodyear close for second with best results in wet handling, aquaplaning, and rolling resistance. Not as direct and connected as the best in the dry, though, reflected in lap times and subjective scores. Feels more like an all-rounder than a sporty tyre.

Continental  SportContact 6 – 4th

If you’re looking for a tyre that excels in the dry and will make your car feel keen and precise, this is a great choice. Fastest and best-rated on the dry track, and felt sportiest on the road. The downside is that in the wet it was off the pace and tricky.

Falken Azenis FR510 – 5th

Scored competitively in the measured wet and dry tests, especially wet braking, and was closer to the pace on the wet and dry handling circuits. Felt reasonably exploitable and grippy in the wet but in the dry lacked a direct, connected steering feel.

Toyo Proxes Sport – 6th

The least expensive tyre and it brought up the rear in many tests, though was rarely a long way off the pace. Scored well in the wet, especially in aquaplaning, but was less good in the standard braking tests. Didn’t feel great, though, rarely feeling hooked into the surface.
